About Skills and Attributes for Career Success: Developing an Enterprising Mindset
Skills and Attributes for Career Success: Developing an Enterprising Mindset is a programme of eight courses that will support institutions in equipping students with the key skills and attributes needed to be successful in graduate-level employment.
With employability high on the agenda for both students and education providers, institutions are increasingly looking beyond skills acquisition and enhancement towards developing an enterprising mindset and key attributes that graduates need to thrive in the workplace
Many of the skills and attitudes that have been identified in successful entrepreneurs have also been highlighted by employers as essential in the workplace and critical to driving business growth. Businesses are looking for enterprising, resourceful graduates who can think creatively and be leaders and innovators in a developing and ever-changing global work environment. Graduates need to demonstrate innovative thinking, understand the advantages of different styles of leadership and demonstrate commercial awareness, effective networking, negotiating and planning skills.
